Welcome to the Rookhurst Hotel…
Richard and Judith Hynds welcome you to Rookhurst – a country house hotel set in the heart of beautiful Wensleydale in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The atmosphere here is of a small friendly country house, rather than a formal hotel. After all, Rookhurst is our home, and you are our guests! Dating back to the 17th century in places, the hotel has a unique character with each room being different in its own special way.
Rookhurst fronts the Pennine Way, on the edge of the picturesque village of Gayle, overlooked from the south by Dodd and Wether Fells, with beautiful views towards Stags Fell and the Butter Tubs pass to the North.
It is an ideal base for exploring Herriot country – the Yorkshire Dales are a delight for both serious walkers and strollers. Nearby is the Carlisle to Settle railway and you can be collected from Garsdale Station. Just round the corner is the Wensleydale Creamery, and in the market town of Hawes (8 minutes walk), the Upper Dales Folk Museum.
Mellow Yorkshire stone, traditional architecture and such a peaceful setting make the Rookhurst Hotel a perfect place to enjoy a few days away from it all.
Let us pamper you with our relaxing service, superior en-suite dinner, bed & breakfast (B&B) accommodation and our wonderful food. This really is a special place to spend some time.
Non-smokers will appreciate our smoke-free ambience.
Children can be a joy but there are times when they should neither be seen nor heard, particularly someone else’s! So we are child-free.
Dogs are welcome to stay in your car, but not in the house.
Have Dinner and a bottle of wine – no need to drive.
A warm Yorkshire Dales Welcome awaits.
